WATCH: Hurricane Hunters– Flying Directly Into Hurricane Matthew to Keep You Safe

7 Oct 2016, 9:14 am

Most pilots try to avoid flying an airplane into severe weather, but not the NOAA Hurricane Hunters. Their job is to fly specially equipped aircraft directly into the eye of the storm to collect crucial data that helps protects lives and property.

The job of a NOAA Hurricane Hunter pilot impacts the day to day lives of ordinary people. The best information about a storm is still found within the storm itself. This information dictates whether people evacuate and businesses shutter, and can ultimately save lives and millions of dollars in property.
